Understanding ACEs: Building Self-Healing Communities

Friday, June 8th 9am – 3:30 PM - Beltrami Electric Co-op Community Room

What if the key to transforming our communities begins with understanding how our experiences affect the smallest of us?

The Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Study findings represent a paradigm shift in human understanding of the origins of physical, social, mental, and societal health and well-being. We now know that leading causes of disease and disability, learning and productivity problems, and early death have their roots in the cumulative neurodevelopmental impacts of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs).

The Understanding ACEs: Building Self-Healing Communities presentation provides information about the ACE study, along with neurobiology that explains why ACEs impact people’s lives, and what we can all do to dramatically improve health and resilience for this and future generations.

The second half of our day will be spent in conversation as we delve into the work and begin to design what this work will look like in our own roles, families, work places and communities.

Join us for the next Understanding ACEs: Building Self-Healing Communities workshop! Details below.

Date and Time: Friday, June 8th 9am – 3:30pm

Location: Beltrami Electric Co-op Community Room, 4111 Technology Dr NW, Bemidji
